These stunningly intricate paper sculptures by Rogan Brown depict biological organisms in incredible detail. The sculptural forms are created by cutting into multiple layers of paper. The work is so detailed, a single piece could take up to five months to complete. However, the artist does not begin his process with a preconceived plan of what the paper will end up looking like. He says, "I want to communicate my fascination with the immense complexity and intricacy of natural forms and this is why the process behind my work is so important."

Rogan Brown's series Paper Sculptures only used white paper, giving it a clean and elegant feel. He manages to balance scientific replications with breath-taking beauty in a way that almost seems effortless, despite the time and labor that goes into creation.
